The 6th graders at Goshen School enjoyed a graduation luncheon on Friday afternoon. They were taught about good manners and etiquette and put those to use during the luncheon. As their time here at Goshen winds down, and the prospect of Jr. High is on the horizon, we hope that the manners and etiquette they have learned is something that they use to show those in the "big city" that Goshen is a great place to be from! Thank you to all of those that took time out of their schedules to make this luncheon possible!
Goshen School was asked to come present some of the awesome things we are doing at the Nebo School District Board Meeting this week. After much thought, it was decided to present the awesome things that our School Community Council are doing, the great way that the 5th grade teachers integrate the fine arts into their everyday teaching, and the 6th and 2nd grade students performed "We Can Be a Light" from their Veteran's Day Program.
A huge thanks goes out to Mrs. DeGraffenried who did the presentation about the School Community Council and everything they do for our school, Mr. Proctor who presented a movie that showed the integration of Music, Drama, Dance and Visual Arts that they do in the fifth grade, and to Mrs. Burningham, Mrs. Openshaw and the brave 6th and 2nd grade students that performed the song.
We are so proud to have these teachers and students here at Goshen.
Our friend and colleague, Mrs. Margaret Allinson will be retiring after many dedicated years at Goshen School. There will be an Open House in her honor on May 23, 2016 from 3:30 pm-5:00 pm at the school. Any friends and past students of Mrs. Allinson are invited to come visit with her, and wish her well. Mrs. Allinson has touched many lives and will be missed. Good Luck Mrs. Allinson!
Mrs. Parkin's second grade students have been hard at work practicing two different plays in their class, and on Friday they performed their plays for their parents. One group's play was called "The Giant Squash and the Eerie Canal" and the other group's play was called "The Little Polinators". The kids did such a great job!
This week (May 2nd through May 6th) is Teacher Appreciation Week. A huge Thank You goes out to all of the PTA and Parent Volunteers that helped decorate the doors at the school on Friday to have them ready for the teachers Monday Morning! The doors look great!
Last week, Goshen students were taught about the history of Western Dance, and they were taught the basics of square dancing. This kids had fun learning the different steps to square dancing, and then putting it into practice. They were even able to square dance to popular music. It was a good time for everyone!
Monday, our school has the opportunity to learn about Country Western dancing by participating in a good ole Western Hoedown! We will learn the history behind Country Western Dancing and learn a dance or two. If you're child has Western Wear, please have them wear it on Monday. If you're student does not own any, that's okay, it's not mandatory. This will be a fun activity, and we're looking forward to learning about this type of dance!
